I want to disable X from starting on boot as its taking up 2.0% of my memory.

Thanks!

open a terminal
su
<password>
gedit /etc/fstab
edit the line that says: id:5:initdefault:
to read: id:3:initdefault:
save & exit gedit
reboot

hi

if u want don't start X windows you change runlevel.
for that go to console base.
Then u open file that is vi /etc/inittab.
In that file replace line no 18 id:5:initdefault:(defaults value) you want change this line as "id:3:initdefault:" . After taht you don't restart the machine just give this command init 3 ant enter then it will go to runlevel 3.
If you see current Runlevel then type command "runlevel"
After that you see your memory space command "free -m"
Then it how much memory is used currently.
ok.

TRY IT

that will switch your current session. the OP wants to boot straight in to runlevel 3. so thats not really a solution.
